Slip on your acid-free gloves, make sure you have a duplicate copy of How to Grow Up and Rule the World (just in case something should happen to this one) and try to follow along as the incomparable, superior-in-all-ways Vordak the Incomprehensible teaches you a thing or two about villainy. Now you, too, can try (and fail) to attain Vordak's level of infamy.From selecting the most dastardly name, to choosing the ideal henchmen, to engaging in witty repartee with disgustingly chipper superheroes, experienced supervillain Vordak the Incomprehensible guides readers step-by-step toward the ultimate goal of world domination (from his parents' basement in Trenton, New Jersey). With chapter titles like "Bringing Out the Evil" and "Building a Top-Notch Evil Organization," numerous bold illustrations, and detailed quizzes to assess your level of dastardliness, this book provides everything necessary to rise above the masses, and then rub your ascent in their faces.In return for this wealth of knowledge, Vordak requests nothing more than an honored place in the evil regime of he who achieves control of the world. (And, of course, the opportunity to assume command, should things not work out.)Publisher's Weekly Starred ReviewWriting as the ultra-evil Vordak the Incomprehensible, Seegert offers a comical step-by-step guide world domination. With a hyperbolically inflated self-image and no shortage of bathroom humor, Vordak guides readers through such topics as how to choose a costume ("the more flamboyant the better"), build a lair, and acquire enough minions to build a top-notch evil organization ("At times they can be difficult to control, but at their best they can be a relentless plague upon civilization"), all of which are paired with Martin's appropriately cartoonish artwork. Seegert gives Vordak a voice so magnetic and absurd that readers, especially young male ones, are going to soak up his warped wisdom like a sponge and circulate it at recess, even as Vordak insults them with admonishments like, "You are just a sniveling, whiny little goober, after all." No one is going to rule the world after Vordak's farcical directives, but readers will have a grand time turning pages to see what outlandish thing he'll say or suggest next, while perfecting their own villainous laughs. Muahahahaha! Ages 8-up. (Aug.)Book Details: Format: Hardcover Publication Date: 8/24/2010 Pages: 208 Reading Level: Age 10 and Up
